Stolen Artwork - "You Shouldn't Have."

"You Shouldn't Have!"
I did this colored pencil drawing for a series of Christmas cards for Piers Anthony, featuring his characters. I had an especially fun time doing this one.

He kindly bought only the publishing rights to the artwork, and allowed me to sell the originals.

The drawing was displayed in a small art gallery in Bremerton. When the gallery closed, the artwork was not returned to me, despite my repeated attempts to have the owner do so. Nor did the owner ever contact me about the artwork.

If you were sold it, you bought stolen artwork.

This is not your fault, and I'm not going to ask for it back. But this was bad business, for both of us. Sci-fi fantasy is better than this.
